Since we couldn't be in the States this year to celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving, Phillip and I decided to do something fun and warm! We headed to Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa! We had a wonderful time since it was still warm there, and being off season, it was uncrowded and less expensive than regular.

The view from our hotel room! GORGEOUS!!!

Check out the Camel on the beach!!

We were essentially located on a giant sand dune. The sand blows in from the Sahara Desert.

Phillip playing in the water. The water was around 70 degrees, which really was ok after you were in it about 5-10 min.

Spending a windy day on the pool deck. That sand hurts when the wind whips up!

Since we stayed at an all-inclusive hotel, we felt like we were kinda on a cruise ship that never went anywhere (honeymoon, anyone!). So, we found it kinda funny that our hotel was shaped like a boat.

One last picture before we headed home. :( It was a wonderful vacation! Just rest and relaxation on a white sandy beach! Lucky for us we had gorgeous weather the entire 5 days until the day we left, when it started to rain. We must have really hit at the right time since they started to store all the beach supplies for winter on our last day.

What we came home to! So so sad!! :(
